Awkward Family Photo on Park Chan-wook's 'Stoker' Official Poster

December 20, 2012


"Do not disturb the family." I think this poster belongs on that Awkward Family Photos tumblr, at least for a few days. Fox Searchlight has unveiled their newest poster (via for Park Chan-wook's Stoker, which they've been teasing since earlier this year for a release next March (after it premieres at Sundance 2013 in January). Mia Wasikowska stars (the one seen in the middle here) in a family drama with some kooky twists, along with Nicole Kidman as her mother, and Matthew Goode as her weird, mysterious uncle. They're teasing this one (with great posters and trailers) in all the right ways, I'm so curious to see it.

Stoker Official US Poster

After India's (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Vengeance Trilogy) directs Stoker from a screenplay by actor Wentworth Miller going as Ted Foulke. Fox Searchlight is releasing Stoker in theaters March 1st, 2013 this spring. See the trailer.

doesn't intrigue me. seems kind of bland. honestly, the only thing about this that really caught my eye was "from the director of oldboy". i feel like they should spend more time on making a really artful, eerie poster for this. try harder to wow people. stand out, don't get lost.

You mean like the previous one? The awesome hand-drawn poster that had a real cool promo video to go with?

Thanks, I'm not impressed with either really, but I'll give the film a shot when it gets released on DVD.

I think different from Nathan, the film actually intrigs me (like the story wiyh Hitchcockian conections and the cast), and I haven't seen the great poster you've kindly linked, so thanks a lot (from Spain), Moutchy.

Uncle Charlie is some sort of assassin. Maybe the wife hired him to kill her husband. And he trains the daughter to be an assassin too. That was probably a stupid idea, but that's what I think it might be.
